London Broncos vs Castleford Tigers Match Report

Castleford Tigers maintained their impressive start to the season with this convincing 40-6 victory over a well beaten London team.
The Tigers have too many top class performers with Jake Trueman surely on the way to a star studded career and surrounded by a strong go forward pack . Paul McShane as usual was superb along with Liam Watts now back to his best .
With seven different try scorers for the visitors this was very much a team effort. London were by no means poor, and they moved the ball well at times .
The Tigers opened the scoring when Peter Mata’utia took a nice ball from McShane to go over for the try .The full back is fitting in nicely to Powell’s team and style of play and what a dynamic player to have running from the back.
For the Broncos , Wales international Rhys Williams responded within a few minutes after a nice back line passing movement. With both sides level the visitors then took control with some superb attacking play and decisive defensive work.
Jake Trueman, Junior Moors, Jesse Sene-Lefao and Liam Watts added further try’s with a power and finesse that London could not compete with. Trueman looks like a superb half back totally in control and with a fantastic passing game and Jesse Sene-Lefao was also outstanding.
The Broncos has a try ruled out by Matt Fleming and there is no doubting the effort with Eddie Battye working hard down the middle .
With Greg Eden adding to the scoreline this was surely Castleford’s best performance of the season to date. The visitors were fast and slick and were good value for the 40-6 victory 
For London they had a few missed opportunities but could not compete with a fiery Castleford pack. They are a team of grafters and will win games this season.
Will that be enough though as Castleford are now moving into a vein of rich form .
